Fox hosts haven’t stopped lying

Murdoch faces new legal difficulties, but so what?

Dominion Voting Systems has the Fox network dead-to-rights: They lied about the company, knew they were lying, but put the lies on the air to make money. Fox is going to pay Dominion a lot of money (but can afford to). But now Fox is in another kind of hot water. Biden’s campaign ran ads [&hel[...]

Are conservatives as crazy as they sound?

Charlie Kirk (photo, left), a community college dropout, is the founder and leader of Turning Point USA, a controversial rightwing campus-activism group sometimes called a “cult” (read details here). Although Kirk lacks academic or other credentials, it would be hard to conclude he’[...]

Tucker Carlson’s war on M&Ms

“I bet you didn’t think M&M’s were pushing intolerance, but they were!” Tucker Carlson ranted when Mars Inc. changed Green M&M’s boots. He also called Purple M&M “obese.” “M&M’s will not be satisfied until every last cartoon chara[...]

It’s time for patriotic Americans to turn off Tucker Carlson

The GOP’s “stolen 1960 election” myth debunked

Republicans have been lying about elections for a very long time. From Raw Story (here): “Grab the nearest Republican and ask them, ‘How did John Kennedy win the election in 1960?’ Most will answer, ‘Mayor Daley stole the election in Chicago.’ In the modern era, that [...]

Educators, say “no!” to nutty parents

Vaccinating kids doesn’t put a microchip in their bodies that allows the government to control their brains. It just doesn’t. That’s a fact. Believing otherwise doesn’t make it true. I don’t see any point in trying to educate those parents, explain the truth to them, o[...]
